One of our Members, Steven McCulloch, is giving a presentation on Honey Bees at Clyst St George Church on Monday 20th June at 6pm. If you are interested in, or simply curious about, the vital role played by honey bees and pollinators why not go along and listen to Steve's fascinating presentation.

NEW APIARY. The Agreement for a new Apiary site for the EBKA bees has now been signed and a stirling effort by a group of stalwarts set to and dismantled the huts from Clyst Honiton, transported them to Greendale, and then reconstructed them at our new Apiary on the weekend of the 4th to the 6th June. Early foundations picture above, more pictures on the 'Apiary' page. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

NEW APIARY. One of our Members, David Stevenson, has kindly donated 6 new books to the EBKA Library - see books highlighted in yellow on the link on the 'Membership' page.
